15th of November – blue and green

November 15th, 2011 at 8:42

I decided to move into an unknown territory for me, the world of more abstract images. I love abstract art, i love te idea of minimalist shapes and colours. I’ve never done this before and this is the result of some baby steps, I’m not even sure you can call this abstract.

blue and green – watercolour 6″x6″ (15cm square)

Baby steps into a new world… if you know something about abstract, or would like to give me any pointers, to give me any feedback I’d really appreciate it. Thanks for visiting, I’m glad you called.

PS I posted the blog post for the 12th here.
And the post for the 13th is here.

    Lovely composition and colours! And I love the texture in the painted blocks. Beautiful.

    This is great!!!It looks so peaceful and calm. I love the colour combination that you used in your abstract artwork. I love abstracts as well but I’m not really an expert on it. The only advice I can give you is to go to the direction where your heart (or paintbrush :-) ) takes you. Love what you do and be sure that you are inspired when you are painting because it will definitely give you awesome results. :-)

    Happy Abstract Tuesday!!!

    Thank you all for your visit and your comments! It’s encouraging to hear your opinion and I’ll keep going with my abstract adventure :-)
    Hahaha I din’t know there is such a thing as abstract-Tuesday But hey, why not?
    Lia, I tried the same technique on the blue dress painting two days ago. It’s a lot more obvious there.

    Happy creative art month to you all!

    I would call it a form of abstract and I think it is quite appealing.

    It is a real journey when you head into abstracts, but this is a great start… like the simplicity and the block as well as the palette… I have told many students to either scan and print a heap of copies of their work at this stage, or get some colour copies at a store and then play with them so they can try a heap of different things… we often then used all these copies to make a larger piece… but lots of people have said this process helped them free up… hope it helps xx

    Pretty and interesting. Good start in experiemenitng with abstracts – I like the color, design, and nicely balanced composition. I haven’t tried abstract yet but have been thinking about it, although I have tried some surreal ideas.

    thank you for you input I will try that, sounds like a useful exercise and as my creative fuel is running a bit low at the moment it sounds even more inviting :-)
